About this conference
Li-Fi is a wireless communication technology which utilizes light to transmit data and position between devices. In terms of its end use, the technology is similar to Wi-Fi but uses light to transmit data instead of radio frequency. Subscribe to our Newsletter
Using light to transmit data allows Li-Fi to offer several advantages, most notably a wider bandwidth channel, the ability to safely function in areas otherwise susceptible to electromagnetic interference (e.g. aircraft cabins, hospitals, military), and offering higher transmission speeds.
It is interesting to realise that lights that illuminate offices, homes, cars, factories, our streets and more locations also can connect us to data and hence power the growing demand for connectivity and speed.
At this conference professionals from all over the globe will gather together in order to share applications, ideas, new developments and ways to integrate Li-Fi in services, both for consumers and professionals.
The Internet of Things (IoT) drives a rapid growth of the amount of data communication as tens of Billions of devices will communicate. Today’s IoT is predominantly narrowband. Yet, we also foresee increasing demands for communication at high Quality of Service, such as guaranteed high bit rates at low latency. A wide range of future IoT applications, i.e. flexible manufacturing, augmented reality and autonomous cars require the exchange of sensor and video data, processed in the cloud, while doing real-time remote control of autonomous devices.
